USS Triton

Specifications - USS Triton

Summary

When launched, the Luna Class explorers either included or improved upon the latest in Starfleet technology when it came to exploration and scientific advancement. Not including the latest advancements in warp propulsion, impulse propulsion and computer interfaces and technology, the Luna Class also employed a dedicated senor pod housed above the main part of the ship. Thanks to the advances and adjustments made to her warp drive, the Luna Class of starships is extremely fast and has incredible endurance for a ship of her size. Even though not primarily a combat vessel, a Luna Class starship carries Type XII phaser arrays as well as two torpedo launchers capable of firing the complete range of torpedoes available in Starfleet.

The most distinguishable item of the Luna Class is her unmanned sensor pod. Much akin to the swappable “pods” used on other Starfleet vessels, a Luna Class vessel houses a good portion of her advanced sensors and scientific equipment in this unmanned pod, increasing sensor range, resolution and accuracy in every way while also allowing more usable space for science labs and living space aboard the main portion of the vessel. The sensor pod is not easily swappable and requires the support of a starbase or repair facility if major changes are to be made. The sensor pod also houses three dedicated probe launchers and is used as a testbed for new probe technologies and ideas.

The Luna Class has been developed to be the Constitution Class for the late 24th and early 25th centuries.
